anal sex harmful and risky

Anal sex or anal intercourse is generally the insertion and thrusting of the erect penis into a person’s anus, or anus and rectum, for sexual pleasure. Other forms of anal sex include fingering, the use of sex toys for anal penetration, oral sex performed on the anus (anilingus), and pegging. Though the term anal sex most commonly means penile-anal penetration, sources sometimes use the term anal intercourse to refer exclusively to penile-anal penetration, and anal sex to refer to any form of anal sexual activity, especially between pairings as opposed to anal masturbation.

Recent researches have shown that anal sex is the riskiest type of sex for HIV transmission. It’s possible for either partner—the insertive partner (top) or the receptive partner (bottom)—to get HIV, but it is much riskier for an HIV-negative partner to be the receptive partner. Vaginal sex also carries a risk for HIV transmission, but it is less risky than anal sex. Oral sex poses little to no risk of getting or transmitting HIV.

To add variety to sex life, some males insist on anal sex with partners. And if you are one of them, then it is imperative to ensure few pointers. Before you begin, there are a few things to keep in mind. First off, the rectum can accommodate about 5-7 inches without any problem, but different people will have different “limits”. So use the information below as the precautionary measure as most of the recipients of anal sex actually open stated that they never enjoyed it all – discarding gays or lesbian inclinations.

Second, there is normally not a significant amount of feces in the rectum except when you actually have to go to the bathroom. So unless you feel as though you’re about to need a bowel movement you generally don’t have to worry too much about pulling something out all covered with…stuff. Having said that, though, there is still the possibility that when something that has been in your butt comes out, it may have some small amount of fecal material on it. If it does, wipe/wash it off – it’s that simple. It’s a good idea to clean your back end itself with soap and water before doing anything related to anal sex, so be sure you take that step before getting started with any of the instructions below.

Finally, you may occasionally hear some misinformation about anal sex leading to inability to have normal bowel movements or “hold stuff in.” This is absolute nonsense. Think about it: The anus is a muscle – exercising it will only strengthen it if anything, so long as you don’t try to shove something way huge into it and tear it. Note that there are really two distinct muscles in the anus – the exterior one you can control, and the interior one, which is an involuntary muscle. The interior one is the one that gives the most trouble when doing anal. The key is to learn to relax it and get it accustomed to having something going *in*.

The most important thing you need to do to enjoy anal sex is to get into the mindset that you are going to enjoy being pounded in the ass. Period. And if it pains you and you never enjoy – DO NOT INDULGE IN THE ACT.

On the contrary, if you want it then you will have problems enjoying it as much as you could if you just cannot get over the fact that anal sex is dirty, disgusting, bad for your health, etc. The anus is one of the most nerve intensive area of your body, and anal play can add SO MUCH to your sex life if you just let it. However, there are risks involve it.

Some adventurous guys persist on having anal sex with female partners. Though they seem to be at lower risk end. The risk might be higher at the receiver’s end. Does having sex really that harmful ? lets check this out.

What are Anal Sex Problems?

There are some unique risks that come with anal sex that you need to know about in order to prevent them from happening to you. These include:

Tearing Tissue in Anal Sex

The lining of the anal canal and rectum are thinner and more easily torn than inside the vagina. Since there is no natural lubrication, there is no protection from friction. Starting slow, and using lots of lubricant, is essential for safe anal sex.

Tearing Muscle during anal insertion

It’s not common, but the sphincter muscles, as any muscle, can tear. Tears can heal and be repaired, but paying attention to your body, going slow and never forcing anything in to the anus is also essential for safe anal sex.

Vacuum Effect of Anal Sex

When you insert something without a flared base in to the anus, it can slip up and out of reach, requiring sometimes surgical intervention. Always use toys designed for anal penetration.

Lack of Sensation Post Excessive Anal Sex

Since there are few nerve endings once you get higher in to the rectum, you won’t necessarily feel pain right away if there is tearing. You may not feel it. It’s important to pay attention to your body during and after having anal sex (particularly if it’s vigorous) and see a doctor if you experience lasting pain following anal sex.

Fecal Contamination of Anal Sex

No matter how much you clean beforehand, anal sex will always involve contact with some fecal matter. There are many ways of internally and externally passing fecal matter to other parts of your body that can cause serious health risks. Always use condoms and gloves, and wash up well before and after anal sex.

Excessive Lubrication Required

“Possible side effects from anal sex include: bleeding from tears in the anal skin, easier transmission of sexually transmitted disease, vaginal infections if you have anal sex before vaginal sex (not recommended), irritation of penile skin and infection if skin tears occur. Since the anal canal does not lubricate like the vagina with sexual stimulation, it is very important to use water-based lubrication. Also keep in mind that genital warts and herpes can both occur in the anal area, and if anal warts extend into the rectum there is a higher chance of getting anal/rectal cancers. I recommend using condoms for all sexual contact to minimize these risks for both partners”  suggested Cheryl Hadley in response to query posed on harmful effects of anal  sex

Anal sex in and of itself is not that dangerous, despite what a lot of old books and other people may say, including science journals. Like most sexual activities, anal sex can be safe and pleasurable, as long as it’s done properly, but still there’s no process to make it 100% secure and safe sex, though some even argue that its unnatural to have anal sex as it is not made originally to perform sex. The bottom line is avoid this, to be on a safer side, if you have girlfriend whom you love too much and not think her off as a sex toy.

What Diseases Occur Due to Anal Sex?

The risk of getting HIV varies widely depending on the type of sexual activity. Anal sex (intercourse), which involves inserting the penis into the anus, carries the highest risk of transmitting HIV if either partner is HIV-positive. You can lower your risk for getting and transmitting HIV by using condoms correctly and consistently, choosing lower risk sexual activities, taking daily medicine to prevent HIV, called pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP); and taking medicines to treat HIV if living with HIV, called antiretroviral therapy (ART). Using more than one of these options at the same time provides even greater protection.

Risk of HIV Due to Anal Sex

Anal sex is the highest-risk sexual behavior for HIV transmission. Vaginal sex has a lower risk, and activities like oral sex, touching, and kissing carry little to no risk for getting or transmitting HIV. The vast majority of men who get HIV get it through anal sex. However, anal sex is also one of the ways women can get HIV.

Receptive Versus Insertive Anal Sex

During anal sex, the partner inserting the penis is called the insertive partner (or top), and the partner receiving the penis is called the receptive partner (or bottom).

Receptive anal sex is much riskier for getting HIV. The bottom partner is 13 times more likely to get infected than the top. However, it’s possible for either partner to get HIV through anal sex from certain body fluids—blood, semen (cum), pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum), or rectal fluids—of a person who has HIV. Using condoms or medicines to protect against transmission can decrease this risk.

  • Being a receptive partner during anal sex is the highest-risk sexual activity for getting HIV.The bottom’s risk of getting HIV is very high because the lining of the rectum is thin and may allow HIV to enter the body during anal sex.
  • The insertive partner is also at risk for getting HIV during anal sex.HIV may enter the top partner’s body through the opening at the tip of the penis (or urethra) or through small cuts, scratches, or open sores on the penis.

What are Risk of Other Anal Infections

In addition to HIV, a person can get other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) like chlamydia and gonorrhea from anal sex without condoms. Even if a condom is used, some STDs can still be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact (like syphilis or herpes). One can also get hepatitis A, B, and C; parasites like Giardia and intestinal amoebas; and bacteria like Shigella, Salmonella, Campylobacter, and E. coli from anal sex without a condom because they’re transmitted through feces. Getting tested and treated for STDs reduces a person’s chances of getting or transmitting HIV through anal sex. If one has never had hepatitis A or B, there are vaccines to prevent them. A health care provider can make recommendations about vaccines.

How to Reduce the Risk of Anal Sex

Condoms and Lubrication

Latex or polyurethane male condoms are highly effective in preventing HIV and certain other STDs when used correctly from start to finish for each act of anal sex. People who report using condoms consistently reduced their risk of getting HIV through insertive anal sex with an HIV-positive partner, on average, by 63%, and receptive anal sex with an HIV-positive partner, on average, by 72%. Condoms are much less effective when not used consistently. It is also important that sufficient water- or silicone-based lubricant be used during anal sex to prevent condom breakage and tearing of tissue. Female nitrile condoms can also prevent HIV and some other STDs. Since condoms are not 100% effective, consider using other prevention methods to further reduce your risk.

PrEP

People who are HIV-negative and at very high risk for HIV can take daily medicine to prevent HIV. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), if taken consistently, can reduce the risk of getting HIV from sex by more than 90%. PrEP is much less effective when it is not taken consistently. Since PrEP is not 100% effective at preventing HIV, consider using other prevention methods to further reduce your risk. Only condoms can help protect against other STDs.

PEP

Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) means taking antiretroviral medicines—medicines used to treat HIV—after being potentially exposed to HIV during sex to prevent becoming infected. PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a possible exposure to HIV, but the sooner the better. PEP must be taken once or twice daily for 28 days. When administered correctly, PEP is effective in preventing HIV, but not 100%. To obtain PEP, contact your health care provider, your local or state health department, or go to an emergency room.

ART

For those living with HIV, antiretroviral therapy (ART) can reduce the amount of virus in the blood and body fluids to very low levels, if taken the right way, every day. When taken consistently, ART can reduce the risk of HIV transmission to a negative partner by 96%. Since ART is not 100% effective at preventing HIV, consider using other prevention methods to further reduce your risk. Only condoms can help protect against some other STDs.

Other Ways to Reduce the Risk

People who engage in anal sex can make other behavioral choices to lower their risk of getting or transmitting HIV. These individuals can:

  1. Choose less risky behaviors like oral sex, which has little to no risk of transmission.
  2. Get tested and treated for other STDs.

If due to excessive penetration it is hurting and you’ve finished a round of anal sex, go to the bathroom and clean up. If he came inside you without a condom, you’ll probably need to evacuate your rectum. When you wipe yourself clean, it’s possible that you might see some blood on the tissue. That’s not uncommon for the first time or two, especially if your guy has a larger than average penis or you’ve used some larger toys (or maybe gotten a bit more vigorous than you perhaps should have). Be sure and wash anything that’s been in your ass with soap and warm water as well, including his penis if he went in without a condom. Remember, if you DO NOT ENJOY it DO NOT GO FOR ANAL SEX!

What are Health risks of Anilingus (Analingus)?

Anilingus (Analingus) is the oral and anal sex act in which a person stimulates the anus of another by using the mouth, including lips, tongue, or teeth. It is also called anal–oral contact and anal–oral sex; colloquial names include rimming and rim job. It may be performed by and on persons of any sexual orientation for pleasure or as a form of erotic humiliation. Health risks include fecal–oral transmission.

how to perform anal sex

Anilingus has potential health risks arising from the oral contact with human feces. Diseases which may be transmitted by contact with feces include: bacterial diseases including shigellosis (bacillary dysentery); viral systemic diseases including hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, poliomyelitis, human papillomavirus (HPV) and herpes simplex virus; parasites including intestinal parasites; and infections and inflammations chlamydia infection, gastroenteritis, conjunctivitis, gonorrhea, lymphogranuloma venereum and other sexually transmitted infections.

Applying the mouth to the genitals immediately after applying it to the anus can introduce the bacterium Escherichia coli (“E. coli“) into the urethra, leading to a urinary tract infection. HIV/AIDS is not believed to be easily transmitted through anilingus.

Anilingus with a number of casual partners increases the health risks associated with the practice. Generally, people carrying infections that may be passed on during anilingus (analingus)  appear healthy. Parasites may be in the feces if undercooked meat was consumed. The feces contain traces of hepatitis A only if the infected person has eaten contaminated food.

Another recent study suggests a correlation between oral sex and throat cancer. It is believed that this is due to the transmission of HPV because this virus has been implicated in most cervical cancers. The study concludes that people who had one to five oral-sex partners in their lifetime had approximately a doubled risk of throat cancer compared with those who never engaged in this activity. Those with more than five oral-sex partners had a 250% increased risk compared with those who never engaged in this activity.

How to Prevent Anilingus (Analingus)

Safe sex practices may include thorough washing of the anal region before anilingus (analingus) to wash away most external fecal particles and reduce the risk of contraction of fecal-sourced infection. An enema can also reduce the risk of direct fecal contact. A dental dam may also be used, and another safe sex practice is to avoid unprotected sex which involves fellatio after anal intercourse.

If the receiving partner has wounds or open sores on the genitals, or if the giving partner has wounds or open sores on or in the mouth, or bleeding gums, this poses an increased risk of sexually transmitted infections. Brushing the teeth, flossing, undergoing dental work, and eating crunchy foods (such as potato chips) relatively soon before or after performing anilingus (analingus) also increases the risk of transmission, because all of these activities can cause small scratches on the inside of the lips, cheeks, and palate. These wounds, even when they are microscopic, increase the chances of contracting sexually transmitted infections that can be transmitted orally under these conditions.
